South African LGBTI radio streaming online

By Paul Canning

Outspoken is a weekly talk show, broadcasting on Mondays between 21:00 pm to 22:00PM  on 1485 AM and DSTV Channel169. The show reaches audiences in the Sub-Saharan Africa and has become a platform of expression for all gay and bisexual people as well as their heterosexual friends and families.

The talk show went on air for the first time on 20 April 2009 and it is co-hosted by Frank Malaba and Dupreez Strauss.

According to Molaba the show has also become a place where people with questions about gay issues can come for information.

“We are also very well placed in society and are getting more and more recognised as a great alternative talk show for those not looking for a typical run-of-the-mill radio show about people that love differently, he said.

It is made possible by HIVOS and the Arcus Foundation on Radio Today 1485AM, DSTV Audio Channel 169 and streaming on and
In their latest show they ask:
  • Why are LGBTI People and women or anyone who is different for that matter treated as second class citizens?
  • Does the very successful SA 'Spud the movie' encourage homophobia? They discuss SA High Court judge Edwin Cameron's letter to Spud the movie's Producer and Creator, Ross Garland.
  • They take calls and "have a healthy dose of party fun!"
